Strana 227 - The South African Republic will conclude no treaty or engagement with any State or nation other than the Orange Free State, nor with any native tribe to the eastward or westward of the Republic, until the same has been approved by her Majesty the Queen.
Strana 417 - He must be an affectionate and dutiful child of the Church, and from habit, conviction, and a constitutional predisposition to ceremoniousness, in piety as in manners, find her forms and ordinances aids of religion, not sources of formality ; for religion is the element in which he lives, and the region in which he moves.
Strana 408 - No foulness, nor tumult, in those tremulous streets, that filled, or fell, beneath the moon; but rippled music of majestic change, or thrilling silence. No weak walls could rise above them; no low-roofed cottage, nor straw-built shed. Only the strength as of rock, and the finished setting of stones most precious. And around them, far as the eye could reach, still the soft moving of stainless waters, proudly pure; as not the flower, so neither the thorn nor the thistle, could grow in the glancing...
Strana 565 - That noble, patient, deep, pious, and solid Germany should be at length welded into a nation and become Queen of the Continent, instead of vapouring, vainglorious, gesticulating, quarrelsome, restless and oversensitive France, seems to me the hopefullest public fact that has occurred in my time . . .

They don't see either that my game is not the light-hearted scoffer ; that I am not (as they call me) a careless infidel. I believe as much as they do, only generally in the inverse ratio : I am, I think, as honest as they can be in what I hold. I have not come hastily to my views. I reserve (as I told them) many points...

Crown Bvo. izs. LIBRARY EDITION. Demyboo. zvols. 3st.net. ' Irresistible in their raciness, their variety, their animation ... of extraordinary fascination.

Strana 196 - Be it granted me to behold you again in dying, Hills of home! and to hear again the call; Hear about the graves of the martyrs the peewees crying, And hear no more at all.
Strana 393 - We must have still spent some time in town-seeing, for it was drawing towards sunset, when we got up to some sort of garden promenade — west of the town, I believe; and high above the Rhine, so as to command the open country across it to the south and west. At which open country of low undulation, far into blue, — gazing as at one of our own distances from...
